According to atheist activist Seth Andrews:
If you’ve purchased tickets for the Detroit conference weekend October 28-30:
Melissa Pugh, one of the speakers close to the event, has informed me that Great Lakes Reasonfest 2016 isn’t going to happen. Alarmingly, I had to get this information from Pugh, as no official word from GLR has come.
The site and social media pages have been dormant. No arrangements have been made for speaker travel/hotel. And I’ve been personally unsuccessful in making contact with GLR’s people.
It’s confusing, because GLR’s website (and ticket sales page) is still up, giving the impression that there’s a Detroit event to be attended.
